Life is short, eat more Cupcakes!- Glitter Paper technique with Heidi Blankenship

Hello everyone!!  Today, I have a sparkling card and a tutorial to share with you using Scrap Happy Sheer Glue and You're So Fine Glitter Diamond Clear Cool Highlights.  

Here is the card that I designed to share with you.  It is SO sparkly!!  I have some close up pictures so you can see all of the details.  How many of you love to use glitter paper?  Did you know that you can make your own glitter paper?  

Making your own glitter paper is so easy--you will love it!  I stamped the frosting image from the Hey Cupcake! stamp set from The Rubber Cafe`.  
Then I used a makeup sponge to apply Scrap Happy Sheer Glue over the entire image.

Next I applied You're So Fine Glitter Diamond Clear Cool Highlights over the entire image using my fingers to rub in the glitter.  The glitter is ultra fine and once you rub and buff it, it almost had the look and feel of velvet.  

For the bottom half of my cupcake I stamped it a striped patterned paper fromCarta Bella's True Friends 6 x 6 paper pad.  Next I stamped the flower, colored it with Copic markers and fussy cut all of the pieces.

For my background I selected a floral pattern paper, and turned it into glittery patterned paper.  Follow the same instructions as mentioned above using a makeup sponge to apply the Scrap Happy Sheer Glue over your entire paper, burnishing again with the You're So Fine Glitter Diamond Clear Cool Highlights .

Here is a close up of the paper--check out all of the sparkle! Just gorgious!

And my finished card... I used A2 Matting Basics A, A2 Matting Basics B and Labels Twenty-Nine die templates to create all of the die cuts.  I added some pretty Celery Green Silk Ribbon and Diva Pink Jellie Dots from The Rubber Cafe` to embellish the card.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial for making your own glitter paper!  If you give the glitter paper a try post a comment with a link-- we would love to see it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
